    Only if you swallow them or lick your fingers after searching rolls from the bank.

    Not if you wash your hands after handling them.

    Don't eat them

    Matter of fact, don't eat them even if they aren't corroded.

    Back when my dad was a kid he would chug down a few pennies with a bottle of soda and a few days later they would come back out. But back then they were copper.

    I'm guessing that your Dad and I are about the same age. We always drank our Coca Cola out of the bottle with Planters Peanuts in them.

    At least he didn't swallow a quarter and hope for 2 dimes and a nickel. :)
